Latest 2021 NBA Championship Betting Odds

The latest 2021 NBA Championship Betting Odds see the Los Angeles Lakers as a big favorite to repeat with the Brooklyn Nets right on their tail.

[geocode id=7]The Lakers lead by LeBron James and Anthony Davis have at times looked even better than last year’s championship winner. That team had an outstanding defense, but the offense left something to be desired on many nights. That offense is much improved this season thanks to the additions of Dennis Schroder, Marc Gasol, and Montrezl Harrell. They are +260 to win the championship right now.

The only team that looks to stand in their way in the Western Conference is the Los Angeles Clippers. The team has looked outstanding offensively with a great season from Paul George, but the defense has struggled early. A lot of new players in the system, COVID, and injuries haven’t helped. Any team with Kawhi Leonard is a threat and they should hopefully play stronger down the stretch. Of the West teams, they have to be the best value out there.

Brooklyn took a huge leap in the betting odds after acquiring James Harden. Kevin Durant has looked like his old self and this team is definitely going to be a threat. The lack of Kyrie Irving is a tough thing to figure because it’s easy for two stars like Harden and Durant to share, it’s much harder when you add that third guy. Plus, with the playoff history of Harden I find it hard to see the value in betting this.

The Bucks are next in the Eastern Conference and they should once again be a threat. They are +700 which is a very nice value. The addition of Jrue Holliday should help the offense and the defense in the playoffs. D.J. Augustin and Bobby Portis should also help. This one just really comes down to how Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo play in the playoffs and if coach Budenholzer will adjust his style for the playoffs. That was a big miss last year and they are probably right where they should be.

The Celtics and 76ers are both at +1800 and they could definitely find their way to the Finals. It’s more a matter of who goes through who. The Eastern Conference is going to be a war in the playoffs.

Last year’s Eastern Conference finalist, the Miami Heat are +2500. This team really figured things out in the bubble, but that has yet to carry over in this season. Injuries and COVID have been a big part of their slow start and you have to think this team will finish strong, but the East is too deep to fall below a fourth seed.
